Zola - Pop-A-Nova

Zola were (still are?) a sextet from Barcelona whose aim it was (is?) to remove elements of pop music rather than add them, to create natural and simplistic melodies. Zola's sound is filled with references to bossa-nova, jazz and - most clearly - c86-era twee pop. Spain has a rich history of indie pop and so Zola are to me an unsurprisingly but thoroughly pleasing discovery!
